Brown Bag – February 25

This week’s brown bag – Feb. 25

Note that the time of this week’s brown bag meeting has been adjusted slightly. This week, Wednesday 25, we will meet at NOON-1pm.

This week we’re very happy to welcome Professor Kiersty Cox, an instructor here at the USF SLIS to discuss preparing for your first professional job.

Last year Professor Cox presented “Get it Write: Make Your Resume Work For You!” at the The Florida Library Association annual meeting in St. Petersburg, Florida. On Wednesday at noon she’ll be happy to share her knowledge about searching, and getting, professional library positions.

Bring you lunch, and bring your questions!

Immediately after our lunch those who stick around will get to see a job talk presentation by one of the candidates for the current SLIS faculty position. These talks are a great way to learn about how to give professional presentations, and are a great way to get some insight into current research problems in library and information science. I hope everyone can stick around.

Upcoming brown bags include Carolyn Edds, a research librarian at the St. Pete Times, on March 4, and on April 8 we’ll be visited by Vicki Zook, an archivist at the St. Pete Times.
